It’s Finally Here

I don’t think that I happened to mention that I am going to the Ricky Tims Seminar.  This Extravaganza also includes Alex Anderson and Libby Lehman.  It starts in our area…….tomorrow!  It has been a 2 year wait.  Our local quilt guild has been working to bring us this show for….ever!  One of my buddies called today asking if I was going.  I am looking forward to seeing her there.  I can’t believe that we are going to get to spend almost 3 days together.

I really learned how to quilt from watching Alex for so many years.  My children would go out to the bus stop and could watch them get on the bus from my seat in front of the show.  I was very consistent about watching it.   I learned more from her than any other quilter.  I have at least 2 VCR tapes of her shows.  I still put them in occasionally.  The techniques still are pertinent even years later.

Check in is at 2:30 pm tomorrow and the programs run until Saturday afternoon.  The church ladies are coming to the house in the morning to start the “Christmas Traditions” quilt.  I have been frantically cleaning.  Usually we meet at the church to work, but I didn’t want to have to haul the sewing machines in and then unload the car before I head into town to go to the quilt show.  So the house needs to be picked up.  DH is out of town until Friday night, so I better do the cleaning now so that I don’t have so much to do later.  He should arrive home while I am at the seminar.

It will be a weekend of quilting fun!  OOOHHHH.  I better get the camera out in the car now!  Thanks you all for reminding me.
